    Mansfield Park: Chapters 11-15

    Oh, boy, let's talk DRAMA. Our Mansfield crew has decided that putting on a private play would be a most gripping diversion, despite Edmund's disapproval. Nothing like throwing a group project onto a situation rife with entitlement, sexual tension, and love triangles to make life easier. Jessie and Annie dive in, trying to decide if they even like their main protagonists and wtf is up with Mary Crawford?

    Mansfield Park: Chapters 6-10

    WHEW, more love triangles than a geometrist can handle! Jessie and Annie return to Mansfield Park and try to sort out all the crisscrossing connections, talk about the unkosher way the others talk about Fanny's physical abilities, whether Rushforth should be sympathized, and why Mary Crawford is no Caroline Bingley. Also, Henry Crawford: [Is he cute or is he tall and white?](https://reductress.com/post/quiz-is-he-cute-or-is-he-just-tall-and-white/)

A MUST for all Austen fans

Jessie and Annie give a perfect combination of in-depth critical analysis and pure Austen swooning. This podcast is a must-listen for fans of Austen, of course, but also perfect for literature fans who want to experience it for the first time. Fun, thoughtful and engaging.

A single girl in possession of a phone must be in want of a podcast

I’m so excited for this. I know Jessie and Annie and they’re wonderful. I’m also a huge Austen fan, particularly Pride & Prejudice (the 2005 film version). I’ve seen so many Austen films, but have never read her books! I’ve started P&P several times, but now I can read along with these wonderful women. I’ve already started Sense & Sensibility. I can’t wait to hear them gush over P&P

Delightful Discussion & Details

Just discovered this Podcast and I’m loving it so far. The Pride & Prejudice discussion is thoughtful and helps explain some complex character layers & motivations you may not get at first watch. The 2005 movie remains an all-time fave, now matched by the new 2020 Emma which is so so good. Their bonus pod analysis of the movie is so fun! The hosts have great chemistry and really know their stuff. If you’re an Austen fan, I highly recommend this one!
